By Keith Davidson.  Interviews

A murder mystery presented in three genres -- gritty film noir when the brilliant detective who solved the case recalls it, lush Hollywood glamour when his starry-eyed wife starts writing a novel about it, and lurid pulp when her meddlesome editor rewrites her. Their comic battle for creative control of the manuscript turns serious when the novelist realizes her husband missed a key clue, and the race is on to see who can re-solve the case first.

SUMMARY (BACK COVER PAGE) NOTES:- SHERLOCK HOLMES ON JACK RIPPERED MORIARTY & JULES VERNIAN TREASURE— -- And Missing Diamond Dowry Treasure of Mrs Auda Fogg of Jules Verne’s “Around World In 80 Days” famous storey – Great epic Part -1 of 2 Parts Novelettes. Introducing First novelette of A Series On Sherlock Holmes, Mr & Mrs Fogg’s World Wide Travelogues -- adaptable for Graphic Novels, Comics TV Serials, Movies, Film-script, ….. Inside Cover (Introductory) Notes: One fine morning crowds gather shouting slogans as newspapers reported that Dr Moriarty arch enemy of Sherlock Holmes was found dead “Jack Rippered”. Moriarty was supposed to have died many years earlier in an incident at a waterfalls in Switzerland 3in which Sherlock Holmes was also reportedly killed, but emerged alive later. Jack Ripper was a mysterious unknown person who killed scarlet women in streets of London decades earlier. One of those cases even mighty (to the public unfailing) Sherlock Holmes failed to resolve. Instead of immediately setting out to solve Moriarty’s case and absolve himself of any and all suspicion of being murderer of Moriarty, Holmes has chosen to continue pondering over various other cases pending on his desk. And I Watson was almost angry when he personally agreed to investigate mainly that society Lady Auda Fogg of Jules Verne’s famous tale “Around World In 80 Days” case of missing pink diamond. Will Holmes solve either or both cases? Foreword Publishing Authors’ Notes – of Introduction. Did spirit or Ghost of Shakespeare or any modern software based on Writing Style of how Shakespeare wrote his great works create this book?

This book and planned series of books on Sherlock Holmes and The Foggs of Jules Verene’s ‘Around World In 80 Days’ fame is based on an innovative new pattern of writing fiction based on now public domain very old fiction of highly popular authors, of so long ago, works copyright has long since expired, -- We have decided to let any would be readers to decide merits of my work on such a new innovative and unusual pattern of writing.
